Dr. Burgess Speaks to Fellow Hand Surgeons!




Dr. Burgess Speaks to Fellow Hand Surgeons! 

Dr. Kraig Burgess, one of the hand and upper extremity specialists here at TOCA recently delivered a talk to area hand surgeons, physician assistants and orthopedic residents on an exciting new form of treatment for scaphoid nonunions. “A scaphoid nonunion is a difficult to treat broken bone in the wrist that fails to heal and has continued to challenge hand surgeons for decades,” said Dr. Burgess. Current treatment has been placement of bone graft and a central screw. “This new treatment involves placement of a highly specialized plate and the early results have been very encouraging,” said Dr. Burgess. Dr. Burgess is coordinating efforts with two other valley hand surgeons to investigate the biomechanical properties of the device and they also intend to publish there results upon completion of the data collection. “This is something that could revolutionize the care of these injuries and create a complete paradigm shift for the future,” commented Dr. Burgess. Dr. Burgess is one of three hand surgeons here at TOCA specializing in the surgical and nonsurgical treatment of disorders affecting the hand, wrist and elbow.

  2. Orthopedic surgery is most popularly used to rectify severe knee injuries that result from trauma or stress resulting from extreme sports activities. Orthopedic surgery is also effective in the repair of hip injuries that result from trauma, fractures or arthritis. In the past, conditions like a tennis elbow were difficult to treat. However, orthopedic surgery has made it possible for sportspeople to reclaim their activity after they have been treated.See more at-Houston Orthopedics
